Lemon Chai Bundt Cake

Lemon Chai Bundt Cake

This week was my brother in law’s college graduation, and I chose a lemon chai bundt cake to celebrate. Having had good luck with bundt cakes recently, I figured I might as well make another. I started with a base of the King Arthur Flour Chai-Spiced Pound Cake recipe. With that baked I then borrowed the lemon simple syrup and lemon glaze from my Easter cake and added that. To finish it off, I diced up some candied orange peel I had and sprinkled that on top. I was afraid that chai+lemon+orange might be too much, but it all worked. I could do without the candied orange peel myself, but everyone else liked it.
